    Abstract: Soil fertility is the major determinant of output in Oku today. The objective of this study is based on the techniques used by rural farmers to maximize output on an advanced deteriorating soil. This phenomenon has not only impinged on output but limits the quality of food available to this agricultural dependent people. Over the years, soil consti... Show More

    Abstract: The dynamics of wind velocity data modeling plays a crucial role for the estimation of wind load and wind energy. Apart from these, the same modeling must also be used in the load cycle analysis of fatigue failure in slender structures to address periodic vortex shedding. Most authors fitted wind velocities of various locations using Weibull model.... Show More

    Abstract: The objective of this article is to communicate a class of new exact solutions of the plane equation of momentum with body force, energy and continuity for moderate Peclet number in von-Mises coordinates. Viscosity of fluid is variable but its density and thermal conductivity are constant. The class characterizes the streamlines pattern through an ... Show More

    Abstract: In order to investigate the influences of the optical forces on the lattice structure of an electrorheological (ER) suspension, on the basis of the experiment of Michael M. Burns etal., comparing their sample with an Electrorheological suspension, this paper substantially discusses the influences of intense light beams on the interaction between th... Show More
